Diagnosis of central nervous system infections can be accomplished
by demonstrating the presence of intrathecally-produced specific
antibody. Interpreting results may be complicated by low antibody
levels found in CSF, passive transfer of antibody from blood, and
contamination via bloody taps. The interpretation of CSF results must
consider CSF-serum antibody ratios to the infectious agent.
